A fairy godmother with a beard? Selara Leda's real fairy godmother has left on a trip, and her substitute is the worst godmother fairy in the world! Burt Buttles isn't even a godmother; at best he's a god-uncle. A god-uncle without a clue. He put brown in a rainbow! Except... Burt has granted Selara's birthday wish: she's a butterfly! A big, amazing butterfly that really flies. Only, she's a kind of butterfly that lives in the Amazon rain forest. Now Selara has a problem: How does she get home? Her fairy godmother-god-uncle, that is-might be her only way out. And he's disappeared. Perhaps with the help of a very large and toothy jaguar Selara can find Burt and make the right wish to go home... before something eats her.
